QMU Virtual Pride 2020
With social justice central to our values, QMU is committed to equality and diversity. Following the cancellation of Edinburgh Pride 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, staff and students at Queen Margaret University wanted to mark the event on its 25th anniversary by sending in banners and messages for a virtual pride parade.

I’m super proud to be a member of QMU and see the excellent work they do for the LGBTQ+ community. Although pride isn’t the same this year, the same love and hope will still shine through and I wish everyone a very happy pride! Stay safe x

No Gay Liberation without Trans women. We owe the trans community everything. LGB with the T.
Although Pride has to be virtual this year there is nothing virtual about our pride – it is loud and real.
Happy Pride day to all. Let's make Pride-parade-like noise tonight, just after clapping for the NHS!

Playing Scrabble, I very PROUDLY discovered that the word QUEER gave me the highest score I have ever managed in the game!
Start early, love is love no matter what
Steve Darling (He/Him)
I'm an ally and I'm 100% in support of Pride and Pride@QMU 2020. Peace and love to all on this important day.
Even though we’ll be indoors, pride will never be cancelled!
I am pleased to support the 2020 Virtual Pride March, and I would like to take this opportunity to affirm Queen Margaret University’s support for our LGBT+ community. It is my firm belief that Queen Margaret University is an open and inclusive place in which to work and study, and the Senior Leadership Team and I am keen to work with the University’s LGBT+ community to make it an ever more inclusive place.
